We’re going to Steubenville!

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

– John 1:5 NABRE

What is Steubenville?

All St. Patrick Parish youth from rising freshmen in high school through rising freshmen in college are invited to attend this weekend retreat each June with our group at St. Patrick Parish in Yorkville.

At Steubenville, you’ll connect with hundreds of other Catholic teens and return home with memories that will last a lifetime.

Contact steubenvilleyouth@stpatrickyorkville.org with any questions.

Registration will open in 2024!

What past St. Patrick attendees have to say:

“I thought it was going to be boring and I was not excited at all. Fortunately, that wasn’t how it went at all. Steubenville was an amazing experience for me and everything about it was very eye opening to me and my faith. I’m definitely going back next year and hopefully bringing new people with me to be able to continue growing in their faith as I did.”  – Leilani

“Each day, a couple of people would come on stage and talk to all the kids there. This really helped me not just understand my faith better, but just seeing adults who stuck to their faith and seemed so happy and complete while worshiping Jesus made it seem possible to do the same. Being there with all these people who wanted to worship God was such an amazing feeling.” – Natalie

“One of my favorite parts of this experience was Adoration.  It wasn’t just silently praying in front of the Monstrance.  During this Adoration, they had music and lights and were walking around with the Monstrance so you really felt the presence of Jesus.” – Kailey
